Was the book well written??

i think the book was well written because it showed details that the movie didn't. This also refreshed my memory on the movie

Would i recommend this book??

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a love story and likes to have a tragedy and then possibly a happy ending. The ending of this book leaves you at a cliff hanger so if you don't like that then you probably shouldn't read this book
